Excerpt: Protection and restoration of coastal watersheds requires the synthesis of complex environmental issues. Contaminated site remediation, dredging and disposal of contaminated sediments, and restoring injured habitats are a few of the challenges facing coastal managers. The evaluation of multiple environmental issues can be significantly improved by combining scientific data and watershed characteristics into a Geographic Information System (GIS). NOAA?s Coastal Protection and Restoration Division (CPRD) has developed decision-support tools for specific watersheds that combine the use of a standard database structure, database-mapping application (Query Manager(TradeMark)) and GIS (i.e., Watershed Projects). Sediment contaminant and toxicity and tissue data, natural resources, and potential habitat restoration projects can be overlaid on a watershed?s features and land uses, and displayed on maps at flexible spatial scales.
